All campers will participate in relays, carnival games, water games etc. In the afternoon, the different groups will show their peers some of what they have learned or otherwise done during camp. Half-day campers are welcome to stay all day. Due to space limitations we unfortunately cannot invite parents to the show.

Hello campers! Bienvenidos a la clase de deportes en Espanol.
This daily sports class is a fun way of incorporating exercise into the Spanish immersion camp. During our 30-45 minute classes, the children do such games ranging from pato, pato, ganso (duck, duck, goose) to futbol (soccer). They learn both teamwork and sportsmanship all while learning Spanish vocabulary (for example, colors, months, commands, and greetings). One game that the campers particularly enjoy is pulpo, pulpo (octopus, octopus) where they get to imitate a variety of animals and objects while avoiding el pulpo in the middle of the gym
When the weather is nice, the children are able to play their favorite games in sports class outside. Along with the daily sports class, I also supervise the children during water games or when they go to the pool.
This class focuses on developing each students motor skills according to their age group–but the most important goal of all is that the children have fun and enjoy a bilingual sports class!
Our first week in Spain we had a blast! We learned so much and we’re on to week two. This time we will be traveling to Colombia in a Submarine!
The children will learn about the modes of transportation and what people in Colombia eat. We will also be learning about the typical Colombian attire for men and for woman and the children will make their own typical Colombian hat out of various materials. On Friday we have a special treat we will be going to a Colombian festival! The children will be part of different dance workshops and they will be able to put all they’ve learn to use!
